north london that was where nancy fascist demonstration had taken place and i got some of the demonstrators have left the park and they're marching out onto the streets of london peaceful demonstration today the purser's the nazis come there would be no peace is that the best way to fight you know susan violent. the only way to far north is is to for not to stand and say we don't like you know don't like you don't know we don't like this you know think this is a danger provoking move. provoke remove all of the violent office about turn the discourse interaction which is the reaction to an action we would have to face nazis last month we would you know we would a british nazi polish northeast of the john you nazis would only be for nationalist and no resist and no first use then just of course because really just our control or distort the goal to destroy i think that's what today's protest is about the last technically allowed to be on the street him marching like this police say at
